Summary

GCSE+ Biology

Biology relates to the science of life. The course helps to put biology in the context of your everyday lives, with topics ranging from keeping healthy to humans and their environment. This course aims to encourage the investigation, observation, experimentation or testing of ideas, and thinking about them in the context of our own life. Biology includes a mixture of theory content, practical applications and experiments, as well as data analysis. All of these concepts are integrated into seven main topics of study: cell biology, organisation, infection and response, bioenergetics, homeostasis, inheritance and evolution, and ecology.

In this course, you will study:

  • • Cell biology
  • • Organisation
  • • Infection and response
  • • Bioenergetics
  • • Homeostasis and response
  • • Inheritance, variation and evolution
  • • Ecology
  • • Key ideas
  • How will I know how I am doing?

    This subject is assessed by two 1 hour and 45 minute exams at the end of the academic year.

  • • Paper 1 covers topics 1–4
  • • Paper 2 covers topics 5–8
  • Both exams are worth 50%.

    What do I need to join?

    Students who study GCSE Biology can progress onto Level 3 subjects such as A-level Biology. Other Level 3 subjects consist of animal science and conservation, health and social care, and sport and exercise. GCSE Biology is one of the foundation subjects that leads to professions in medicine, marine biology, environmentalism, physiotherapy and many more.

    Work Experience

    You will be required to do a minimum of 36 hours of work experience. This is typically done in a week during term time. The aim of work experience is to provide learners with life experience in writing an exciting CV, to help them discover what full-time employment is like and to help them begin to think of potential career paths.
